  1. Just noticed that Seasons 1 & 2 of FiM just got put on Netflix Canada. Yay!

  2. @abigpony That's a good idea. Good night mate.

  3. @omni Ouch. I'm so sorry, mate. If you want, I know a guy from Boston who owes me a favor. Just say the word and bada-boom, problem solved.

  4. @omni My brother does the exact same thing. Doesn't help that we're separated by a single wall and he leaves his door open.

  5. @dlcentaur Like I said, children's theatre. If I cared about my image, I certainly wouldn't be wandering around in silly costumes singing silly songs. Trust me, it's impossible to care about reputation. But the same goes for the metaphor; if you hang out with football players, people will see you as a football player, even though you don't consider yourself to be one.

  6. @abigpony Ahh, there's those assumptions again. Why I act is my business, but I guarantee that it's none of those reasons. I act because I'm good at it and because I love doing it. Nothing about image there.

  7. @dlcentaur Just because I hang out with and talk to bronies doesn't mean I am one. To use a poorly-written, sleep-deprived metaphor; just because you're friends with football players, does that make you a football player? Possibly, but maybe you're a person who just likes watching football, or has better things to do with his time than sit around talking about football all the time.

  8. @abigpony That's implying that I care about my image. I'm an actor in children's theatre, it's impossible to care about reputation with a job like that.

  9. @diamonddragon Indeed.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:27:03 UTC from web in context
  10. @diamonddragon It's my entertainment for the night. The best debates always come from people defending something they love passionately.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:24:35 UTC from web in context
  11. @abigpony Ahh, but the only people online who would see are exactly those who don't care about the brony image. (i.e. the bronies themselves.)

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:22:47 UTC from web in context
  12. @diamonddragon Uh-huh.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:18:04 UTC from web in context
  13. @abigpony No they don't. I fail to see how a website I visit on my computer, in my own home, can be seen by the people I know.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:17:16 UTC from web in context
  14. @diamonddragon Yes, hello, good morning/afternoon/evening.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:14:20 UTC from web in context
  15. @abigpony Oh come on, you know that's not what I meant. All I'm saying is that out in public, I can't associate with the fandom.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:13:33 UTC from web in context
  16. @abigpony And that is the point where you'll have to accept my refusal. I may enjoy the show, I may listen to the music, but I simply am not a part of the fandom. I never have been, I never will be. Sorry.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:09:20 UTC from web in context
  17. @abigpony Never have I heard those terms used to describe bronies, but maybe I'm just hanging out in the wrong parts of Canada.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:07:12 UTC from web in context
  18. @abigpony Not even then. I'm intentionally distancing myself from anything to do with the fandom, aside from one or two artists who couldn't possibly be construed as bronies unless you knew beforehand.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:05:54 UTC from web in context
  19. @abigpony Well my apologies then. I wasn't aware that the image of bronies had changed. But my point still stands; it's a negative image thing, even if it's become more neutral lately.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:04:23 UTC from web in context
  20. @abigpony No. no no no. I absolutely refuse to bring it up, even jokingly. Even tiny references. I hold a special loathing in my heart for the people who try to insert "20% [X]", "Eeyup" or any other meme related to ponies, into generl conversation.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:01:00 UTC from web in context
  21. @abigpony Yes, I'm talking about a small minority of the fandom because that's how the media portrays them. I'm not saying you're all like that (Now that would be unfair) but that image is what gets presented to the public, so that's how you're viewed.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 09:59:05 UTC from web in context
  22. @abigpony Trust me, I'm tolerating it enough. But people see that and lump me in to the same bloody category as them; thus, why I have never been, nor will I ever consider myself to be, a brony.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 09:55:16 UTC from web in context
  23. @pony Precisely my point. See how outrageous that sounds? Yet people believe it because that's what humans *do*. They judge things based on appearances.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 09:54:11 UTC from web in context
  24. @dlcentaur I'm just saying that there's a certain line that goes from being a fan, to being just plain creepy. I'm talking about the guys with about $5000 of pony merch, (Don't laugh, I know a bloke who actually has that much, perhaps more.) I'm talking about the ones that scream at everyone they know, "OMG Y HAVEN'T U SEEN TEH SHOW YET????? FLUTTERSHY IS BESTEST PONY!!!!" etc. I mean the ones that cover every. Single. Inch of available clothing in pony pins and stickers and patches, who own every single toy ever made and can recite every episode by heart. I know people who've done that and more. Now, don't get me wrong; this fandom's created a lot of amazing things. I've seen some brilliant music, art, writing, and even some quality animation, but the media (and thus, the public at large) isn't going to show that. Instead we get portrayed as the "group of pedophiles that watch animated ponies"

  25. @abigpony Of course I was. But then I realized what a prick I was being and moved on.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 09:49:52 UTC from web in context
  26. @dlcentaur No. It was like this back in season 2. It's just happened to reach a critical mass in the last few months. Now, I'm not saying all bronies are annoying tossers, mind you; but a large number of the ones I see walking around and stuff have taken obsession to a new level that's just embarrassing to look at.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 09:39:56 UTC from web in context
  27. I never thought I'd say this... But I think this fandom's reached a state of being where I'm actually ashamed to consider myself a part of it. True story.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 09:32:49 UTC from web in context
  28. @gladosenchilada That just may be the greatest thing I've seen all week.

  29. @teriyaki !calgarybronies As far as I know it's just standard format, and we might play a two-headed giant if we feel inclined. It's not really set in stone though.

  30. Dear Princess Celestia, today I learned that sometimes your professional life needs to take precedence over your personal life, like when your director decides to be a complete tosser and schedule rehearsal on the same date as the season 3 premiere. feelsbadbro.jpg
